Gadget Addict Review – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper

I have a new fav toy!  I figured it was time for me to write a review for this because I find myself reaching for it over and over.  

This is the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper by We R Memory Keepers.  This tool is really great.   I love my Crop-A-Dile and this is obviously made by the same company.  
This will cut a 1/2″ radius or a 1/4″ radius rounded corner.   I never really understood what a huge difference that could make in your project until I started using this.   I find myself using both sides equally for different type projects.   The mini album I did earlier this week with the cards used the 1/4″ radius corner for the note paper I printed.   This matched much better with the smaller angle of the deck of cards.   It cuts through a single sheet of copy paper, patterned paper or cardstock with no problem. I’m currently working on a BIA guide and am using the 1/2″ corner for that.   With this album, I am cutting through patterned paper, cardstock, and chipboard.   This Chomper will also chomp through acrylic and/or leather.  It is easy for me to squeeze through the chipboard as well as thin paper.   The only drawback it may have is if you have little hands as it does have a fairly wide grip on it.   It fits my hand just fine, though, and I don’t think I have a really large hand!  😉
This Chomper has little wings that fold out to use as paper guides to assure a clean and evenly aligned cut each time.   The front flap folds down to empty all the little chomped off corners.  You hold it one side up for 1/4″ and flip it over to punch the 1/2″.  Truly, I have not been using my old little corner rounder since I bought this.  This Chomper stays on my desk or in my scrap tote if I’m traveling.
I’ve seen other heavy-duty rounders that only do one size and cost as much as this Chomper does.  You’d have to buy two of those to do what this one does.  Also, many of the heavy duty rounders do not do as well of a job on little thin paper as well as chunky stuff.  This Chomper can easily be purchased from most local scrapbook stores.  If they don’t have it in stock, ask them to order it for you.   They retail for about $25.  
If you have used this Chomper, let me know.   If you have any questions, let me know.
I love hearing from you and eagerly check for comments.   I am so excited to see new followers too.  You should say hi and introduce yourself as I’d love to meet you.   My friend, LaWanda, says it is time for me to give away some blog candy.   Hmm.???…stay tuned…

Thanks for stopping by!
